Founded in 2009, the ArcelorMittal Resende plant is a mini-mill, creating steel primarily from scrap metal in an electric arc furnace.[2] The plant specializes in rebar, wire rod, and drawn steel for use in civil construction, industry, and agribusiness.[3][4]

The plant was originally owned by Brazilian steelmaker Votorantim Siderurgia. In February 2017, ArcelorMittal and Votorantim announced plans to combine their long steel operations in Brazil.[5] Under the deal, concluded in April 2018, Votorantim Siderurgia became a subsidiary of ArcelorMittal Brasil.[6]
